We are exploring Sadaqa in the Quran in an attempt to refute Ahmadiyya arguments which suggest that Ahmadiyya chanda is mentioned in the Quran. A brief check from the Quran proves that at Mecca, Allah never asked for Sadaqa. All Quranic advice to pay sadaqa comes from after the Hijra and starts just before the Battle of Badr. In every single instance, Allah is asking Muslims to pay more than Zakat so as to support the war effort, and feed the poor/needy/converts to Islam. According to some hadiths, “a kind word and smile” can be considered as sadaqa and the best form of it is “passing on knowledge.” Also, Muhammad said in a hadith that sadaqa removes seventy gates of evil.
